Got 1500 points of Khorne atm
and building another 1000-1500ish for side board/mix ins. I just had afew questions as im new as gak to AOS
coming from a 40k
background sooooooooooooo here we go:
1. Which Khorne book do i buy? I saw one that was Chaos Battletome: Blades of Khorne and then another one and they both look the same, but different?
Yes, the 1st & 2nd edition Khorne books look very similar.
You buy this one: https://www.games-workshop.com/en-US/Battletome-Blades-of-Khorne-EN-hb-2019
Because it's the most recent.
2. How Good is Archaon the Everchosen? I know he's like....what 700 points? But is it worth it to take him over 1-2 thirsters?
He's pretty good, & a fantastic model. I still prefer Bloodthirsters though. It's just a #s thing. I can get 2+ units vs 1....
3. I'm running 6 of the mounted dude (Skullcrushers I THINK) mainly cuz i like the models, but most lists i see don't use them are they like super bad or something?
Mounted demons? Or mounted chaos warriors?
I'm guessing others don't use them as they've done the math & think they're overpriced. But don't let that stop you.
I've run 20+ of the mounted demons. My friend has about the same amount of mounted warriors. We've had perfectly fun games. But then we're not concerned about being tourney optimized.
4. I'm also running 2x Slaughter Priests cuz this seems like they're in every fricken list and the models look cool so sure, but why are they in every list?
Because of their prayers & maybe access to the Judgements. That's why they're in my force.
5. Do i have to take a shrine in my army and does it cost points? Should i include one?
The Skull Alter? No you don't have to take it. (honestly I forget what it does as I've never built/used one) iirc
it's terrain. If I'm right its 0pts. So if it's free there's not much reason NOT to take it - beyond like me just never buying the kit.....
6. I've got 10 of the....Bloodthirsters? The demons with swords because i've been told to take a unit of them for summoning purposes....should i take more then 10?
Oh, if only Bloodthirsters came in units of 10....
You've got Bloodletters
I'd say have access to twenty & when you get your tome study the rules for bloodpoints & summoming. Then decide what you need
7. Goreglaives - wtf
are they and should i take...i think its 1 per 5?
Sorry, minds blanking on this ones stats.
8. Are the canons ever worth it? I like the model and if their just hot garbage like they are in Total War Warhammer 2 i probably won't pay for them if i'm never gonna use them, but i do like the model.
Eh. They provide a bit of shooting. I own two & sometimes use them. Overall they've never been terribly effective. Bur every now & then....
Mostly I use them just because I like the model and am not afraid to change up my list occasionally.
